Blank Screen-Archos Jukebox

Hi, I've had this mp3 player for a long time now (years). About a year ago (maybe 2), the screen became blank. I can access the music files from my pc when I connect it, but cannot listen to any mp3's on the players.

What can I do?

Thank you,

My archos 5 IMT 160 gb has a blank screen. It looks like is charged. I makes noise while is starting up, but the screen is blank. I* charged for over 10 hours.

Screen is blank?
Do you mean you won't see anything at all like the signup colorful screen that says "ARCHOS Entertaining your way" ?

If your battery is full charged (did  the CHG LED green light blink when it finished charging?), and you have a blank screen, do you have a serious problem indeed. If your unit is under warranty your best and only way is contact Archos.

If when you turn it on, it takes you to the Recovery screen (white screen, usually says Code 101) then try to Format the HDD, download the latest firmware from for your unit, copy it from your PC to the Archos, let it finish the process wth the power supply connected, and once it's done the unit should be back working fine with the latest fimware.

But if you definetely do not see anything but a blank screen when you turn it off, your problem is more serious than a simple firmware upgrade, and you need to contact Archos tech support.

Hi. What is 'completely blank'? If the screen is blank after pressing the email icon then do a master reset, or do a disk repair ( from Setting). Shay

Archos 605 160G Error cod 102

Hi everybody i just got off with archos USA tech support there is no other way but to send it in and they wil replace the HDD with a new one. If the archos is not under warranty repair cost is $ 172.50 i think you can buy another one for that price. Although they give you 90 days warranty for their fix.

Blank screen after updating firmware

It was $30 dollars, my suggestion is to smash it with a hammer and just buy an ipod. I have 2 friends with 2 different models of onyx players, The 2GB is now dead with a white screen, the others battery dies in 25 minutes.
Dont buy offbrand ****..

iPod, Sony, Zune. Best quality. I still have my original ipod from 4/ 1/2 years ago and it still works.

Blank screen

I had the same problem with a blanked screen after a drop. I was able to get it back by disassembling the unit and GENTLY pushing down at the top of the LCD. Apparently it stopped making a good connection when I dropped it.. whew! I've seen a number of comments about the same issue; hopefully this will help.

I modded my unit as well with a larger hard drive, so I didn't want to send it in to Creative for repair...

Screen Gone Blank

LCD is soldered onto the board. Meaning the difficulties of replacing the LCD will be there, not to say it would not be possible. But for about the same price (my guess by looking on ebay), you could get a used Zen Xtra (without a hdd) for about $30 or less. After you get a new board you could replace your player with the new used one, making use of your old hdd

Won't turn on.

"If your Zen is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."
